Knife pulled on coworker at Birmingham Plaza

Birmingham police officers were dispatched to 210 S. Old Woodward Avenue, the location of the Plaza of Birmingham, on Wednesday, March 8, after an individual pulled a knife on his coworker during an argument.

Witnesses reported that the two coworkers were arguing when one, a 54-year-old male, pulled out a knife. He reportedly put the knife away after witnesses asked him to, and officers later found the knife discarded nearby.

The 54-year-old said he pulled out the knife because he felt physically threatened by his coworker, a 28-year-old male, who was allegedly clenching his fists. The 28-year-old individual did not want to complete a witness statement, according to police.

Detectives have submitted the case to the Oakland County prosecutor’s office for review, said the Birmingham police department.
